About Margene Walz

Hi, Welcome to my home – My name is Margene Walz. I am the owner and am thrilled to show you around. Many years ago I moved to California from Nebraska but have always missed the mid-western values and hospitality. Through the advice of my brother Mike Walz of Crystal Beach's Walz Family Builders I seized the opportunity to sell my California condominium and built on Bolivar. I appreciate the area and the hospitality. It is like coming back to my roots. I am very pleased to be able to share my home with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. (By the way...the picture is of my great nephew, Alex. He photographs cuter than I do.)

Margene Walz purchased this house in 2014

Why Margene Walz chose Texas Gulf Coast

Since my brother owns a home and a business in Crystal Beach I have visited many times. Each time I fell more and more in love with the area. I decided to invest my retirement money here and I can't wait to share this peaceful stress-free beach with you.

What makes this house unique

The front deck is 16' deep - 8' is covered and 8' is uncovered. Guests are able to enjoy the shade, read, sip a glass of wine or beer or tan in the sunshine. The deck which wraps around 3 sides of the house has private doors from the Master bedroom and Guest bedroom. Each has its own romantic personal space. But the most impressive thing about this home is the spectacular beach front view. The family area under the house includes an enclosed shower, bar with enclosed refrigerator and 2 built-in picnic tables. It is a wonderful area that will accommodate many family members and guests. Plus it offers you all the comforts of home with the additional bonus of hearing and watching the surf.

Clean and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! Went with a group of gals for a weekend. It was clean, spacious, and had lots of windows. The deck is awesome, cannot beat that view and great to have the little gate blocking the steps. The kitchen was fully equipped, including blender and spices. No garbage disposal though, so had to be mindful. The house does sway but it was usually only noticeable when sitting down and people walking up and down the steps. It's not severe like a cruise ship or anything. Loved staying a little further east on the peninsula; I felt like people had a little more respect for the beach. The owner is also very quick to respond with any communication and was a pleasure to rent from. Can't wait to come back.

Great views! Good beach access.

  • 4 of 5

My two adult children, their spouses, four grandchildren (ages 16 to 11) and myself had a great family get away. Everything we needed to enjoy beach life for a week. The double bunk bed in one room was more kid friendly but I did manage to sleep pretty well with my youngest granddaughter.
